30 vs. Mr. A in the last 10 On the morning of the day, I received the Janssen vaccine at a clinic in Buan, Jeollabuk-do.

There were no symptoms at the time of inoculation, except for a sore arm that received the injection.

However, from 9 pm on the same day, he suffered from respiratory distress and a high fever of over 40 degrees.

A went to the emergency room of a nearby hospital.

As a result of emergency measures by medical staff, the fever dropped to 39 degrees.

Up until this point, I thought it was just a symptom that could appear from getting the vaccine.

At 5 pm the next day, I got a call from the doctor who gave me the vaccine.

The doctor said on the phone that he would come to see Mr. A.

'It's not necessary' and 'It's late, so come tomorrow', but the doctor came to see Mr. A at midnight that day.

And he confessed that he had injected more than the prescribed dose of the vaccine.

In a telephone interview with a reporter, Mr. A remembered the conversation with the doctor at the time like this:

"They said that 0.5ml had to be administered, but they said that it contained 6 servings or 3ml. He said that he did not know. He said that there was something wrong with the delivery process, and he said he did not know well."

The dose of Janssen vaccine recommended by the quarantine authorities is 0.5 ml.

Janssen vaccine requires that 1 vial (1 bottle) be used for inoculation for 5 people.

"Amount for 6 people" means that a whole vial was inoculated to one person.

"Then the doctor said, 'If you get a lot of vaccines, you'll have more antibodies.' It was so ridiculous. When I asked if it was a medical accident, he said, 'It's not a medical accident yet.' I don't know what 'yet' means. "

In addition to Mr. A, 4 people who received the Janssen vaccine on the 10th and 11th at the same clinic were also overdose.

According to Mr. A, it seems that the doctor became aware of the fact that the overdose was administered on the afternoon of the 11th.

"When the doctor first called, he didn't tell me about it. So I asked him. Why didn't he tell you when he called? He said, 'We had already discussed how to deal with this matter with the public health center and Chonbuk National University Hospital before that.'"

A was transferred to Chonbuk National University Hospital. It is said that the head of the public health center persuaded Mr. A to call him directly and transfer him to Chonbuk National University Hospital. Currently, five victims, including Mr. A, have been admitted to the intensive care unit of Chonbuk National University Hospital and Jesus Hospital and are observing the prognosis.

The quarantine authorities explained that he was not admitted to the intensive care unit because his condition was serious. Jeollabuk-do and Buan Health Center said that the five people were in good condition. He explained that the admission to the intensive care unit is to observe the occurrence of unexpected adverse reactions after isolation. In fact, Mr. A said in a phone call with a reporter, "Currently, he has only a slight fever."

In a phone call with a reporter on the 12th, the head of the Buan Health Center announced that he would cancel the contract with the consigned medical institution and collect all remaining vaccines. Lee said that the AstraZeneca vaccine is also vaccinated, and that those who received the first dose here will be able to get the second dose at another institution. Jeollabuk-do also announced today that it will cancel the contract with the consigned medical institution of the clinic.

The doctor who gave the overdose was not contacted. JTV Jeonju Broadcasting reporters visited the clinic yesterday (12th), but did not meet the doctor, and the staff did not give detailed information. However, it confirmed the fact that five people who received the Janssen vaccine on the 10th and 11th received an overdose.

Instead, I was able to hear the doctor's position through the director of the Buan Health Center. The director of the Buan Health Center said in a phone call with a reporter, "The director himself was very surprised. He said he had nothing to say and that he would take responsibility for everything."

Fortunately, if you look at the vaccination guidelines made by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention based on the US CDC guidelines, it is judged that there are no serious side effects even if you overdose than the recommended dose. However, it contains the content that reports of pain in the arm area of ​​inoculation are high. Overseas, there have been many cases of overdose inoculation by medical staff, but there are no known cases of serious side effects or death.

As a result of consulting experts, there were many opinions that there is no need to worry too much about this case where about 3 ml of vaccine was administered. But he said the prognosis should be closely monitored.

Professor Ki-seok Ki-seok of the Department of Pulmonology at Hallym University Sacred Heart Hospital said, "It may vary depending on the range of the overdose, but if you take more than the recommended dose, there may be a risk of more side effects.

Recently, there have been cases where the dose was lower than the prescribed amount.

In Namdong-gu, Incheon, a medical team administered only half the recommended amount of AstraZeneca vaccine, saying that it can reduce adverse reactions.

The recommended dose for a single dose of AstraZeneca is 0.5 ml. The quarantine authorities are of the view that re-vaccination is not necessary if more than half of the recommended dose is administered. .

Experts say that it is dangerous for medical staff to intervene in the inoculation process because there was not enough time for research or clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccine. It means that it is safest to follow the guidelines recommended by the quarantine authorities.

Choi Jae-wook, a professor of preventive medicine at Korea University, said, "Currently, in a situation where scientific evidence is insufficient, we are proceeding based on the facts known so far." He added, "It protects the health of patients and prevents damage from medical practices while expecting the effect of forming antibodies. In all respects, it is safest to follow the recommended guidelines.”

Therefore, whether intentional or not, cases of misinoculation by medical institutions can increase public anxiety about vaccines. As the quarantine authorities 'consigned' vaccinations to medical institutions, they are clearly responsible for failing to prevent such erroneous vaccinations. It should be borne in mind that there is no choice but to limit management by simply sending the vaccination guidelines as an official document.
